Robot magazine Review

Robot magazine
$5.99 Cover Price or 1 Year for $24.95 as of September 2008
Score: 3.8 / 5
Difficulty: 1 / 5

Robot magazine is the Popular Science of the robotics world. Its filled with great glossy photos, one or two equations and generally avoids getting deep into technical details. Somewhat surprisingly the ads seem to be more technical then the articles.

The magazine generally seems geared towards hobbyists and students who have competed in FIRST robotics. The main feature of this magazine is their solid coverage of robotics news and events. They have just moved from publishing semiannually to publishing bimonthly. I would probably buy it again for the pictures and the advertisements.
